|Abstract:||In response to our article, “The judicialization of health and the quest for state accountability,” in which we examine a systematic sample of 1,262 lawsuits seeking access to medicines in the southern Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul, Octavio Luiz Motta Ferraz raises three concerns: 1. that our use of the term “myth” to describe the popular narrative in Brazil about the “judicialization of health” is inaccurate; 2. that our data has limitations, and particularly that our claim that judicialization “largely serves the disadvantaged” in Rio Grande do Sul is not fully warranted; and 3. that our findings “reaffirm” his view of what he calls “the Brazilian model of right to health litigation.”1|
